Boxing thread

Recommended Posts

Time for a generic boxing thread on here! 

 

Anyone see the gash on Badou Jack's forhead on Sunday morning? You could have drove a Fiat 500 through it. Claret well and truly everywhere. 

 

We had the opposite ends of refereeing over the weekend, the stoppage in the 12th between Andrade and Akavov was utterly bizarre, and the ref allowing Jack to continue against Browne with that cut  :omg: 

 

I know he did stop the fight and ask the doctor for his opinion but that might have been the worse cut i've ever seen in a fight. 

 

Other than that Pacquiao completely outclassed Broner, possibly setting up a rematch with Mayweather (if his gambling addiction means he's a bit skint again)

It was brutal that cut on Jack one of the worst I have seen.

 

I did love how deluded Broner was after his defeat. I will always be disappointed Pacquiao and Mayweather didn't happen years before it did. I would probably watch a 2nd fight between the 2 I think it would be a bit more interesting than the first fight albeit probably because of their ages.

Broner was a typical yank, believing his own hype. That's why he's been a let down in the 147 division.

 

Pacquiao is not the man he was, I'd love to see him in with Thurman or Spence Jr, a real test. He keeps fighting on the fringes of the elite.

 

What does everyone make of the Eubank v DeGale fight? This should have been on ITV at 10pm on a Saturday night not PPV. I think Eubank will win @ UD. Hopefully it will have some kind of under card.....

It should be a good fight I think Degale it's a must win given his age. Eubank could still be a good fighter. I think he could have beaten Billy Joe Saunders if he started how he finished it and Groves clearly he seemed to throw his game plan out of the window and got thrashed.

Another thing that has disappointed me is Khan refusing to fight Brook. Clearly Khan will do everything to avoid that fight it's a fight I can't see happening now.

On Khan - you've got to give him some credit. Crawford is a beast, three weight world champion and current WBO welterweight champ.

He could have taken the Brook fight but I think that'll still be there in October / November.

 

If DeGale wins he could set up another all British world title fight with Callum Smith, a defeat for either man surely ends any hope they have of fighting at the elite level again.

    • Indeed, by all means berate the club for signing these lot in the first place, Gestede and Shotton haven't improved our team and are on wages they'll be lucky to earn ever elsewhere. It's our fault we can't get rid of them but indeed, that makes getting rid of them more difficult and we'd do well to shift any of them. You essentially need the player to negotiate their own exit for the good of their career the way Guedioura did but I don't really blame players for not doing that.
    • Yep agreed. I mean, it's obviously not ideal to have about 50k a week not contributing in Gestede and Shotton but considering the enormous turmoil we've experienced in recent years it could be much worse. If we can't extend with Britt we need to sell him in the summer and I can see us having to accept a deal less than 5 mil. As you say Stoke look in horrible shape, and they will be lucky that they still have year with parachute money next season but they will drastically have to cut back and get rid of some serious deadwood.
    • 3 star manager? 🤷‍♂️🙃😂
    • Whatever you think of our deadwood it could have been worse I mean look at Stoke they have 30+ million pounds of players out on loan and no sign of people actually paying permanent fees for them. We could be in a worse position when you think of the Vokes type we were linked with wanting under Pulis he looks shot, even looking back to the PL summer our no.1 midfield target before De Roon was Lukas Rupp for 8 million he joined Norwich this month for 500k! Only player I'm left worrying about us shifting from the books is Britt unless he hits a hot streak before the summer shifting him for what we'd consider a reasonable price in the summer seems like a very difficult protracted effort but he has to go.
    • Because no one else wants Deadwood either. We're stuck until their contracts expire.
